Tattoo and Pierced Tribe II - Page 29

post #561 of 703
I have a three week old nose piercing. It is pink and very puffy on the outside around the gem. No drainage, a tiny bit tender. Using saline on it daily. How do I tell if its a keloid or if I'm rejecting it? My ears have always been a bit fussy, but can wear earrings. What to do? HELP please. My piercer is 100 miles round trip.

I'd get some emu oil, I have one ear hole that took a lot longer to heal when I had them tapered and the emu oil really helped. If you can't get any locally you can get it at body art forms online.

Sounds like granulated/hypertrophic scarring. Could be the finish on your jewelry, could be mechanical irritation or chemical irritation or you could have bumped or snagged it.

Vyky, my girl, thank you so much for that. Your pieces are AMAZING! I love the ones that look like clouds the best.

I love me some jewelry. The funny thing is I rarely ever wear it. Naked lobes are much more practical with a wee one

I just joined the tattoo tribe. :-)

I got a rose on my right shoulder, designed especially for me by my 16 y.o.

She got her lips pierced while I got my tattoo.

I just got it retouched because of bra lines thru it. Location is everything. LOL.

It's kind of something no one expected me to do.

I would love to get a tattoo that represents each of my kids but am still contemplating what each one would get.

Also, you could try something other than metal. Wood is amazing, light weight and organic. No allergies there.

HTH
Thanks, I decided to stay at 16 gauge for now. I'm debating 3rd holes though. But pool season is coming so I might wait for fall.

I am starting to gauge my ears. I was a 20g, i assume this because i got them pierced when I was 10 and haven't really worn earrings much since. I decided to do it because i wanted to use the holes that i have had for so long. I am planning to go up to a 10 at most. I dont want gaping holes.Yesterday, I put in 16g because they didnt have any 18g rings. So far, they are just a bit sore. I cleaned them carefully. Today they dont feel so bad I am looking forward to the new earrings i get once i gauge them.

My nose piercing is no more. Had to take it out. Or let me rephrase...it was so swollen the gem disappeared into the hole and I had to poke it back up and out!!!

Vyky What are your thoughts on transdermals and microdermals? I'm thinking of getting an eyelet done.

I have a transdermal implant and it's been nothing but trouble right from the get-go, though they are pretty much obsolete since the perfection of the microdermal- which I love. I've had, for the most part, great success with them in my clients so long as they're properly placed and on people who are conscientious about caring for their piercings.

Though I'm not sure what you mean by wanting an eyelet- you want to stretch your earlobes?

No I want a microdermal right near the corner of my eye, I don't have my lobes stretched and I rarely wear earrings in my ears, I have piercings elsewhere. I've never had problems with any of my surface piercings, so I want to get a microdermal since I've had good experiences with my surface piercings.

I don't think I've ever seen a snowflake tattoo, that's really original!


My appt is tomorrow to get my first tattoo, we're starting the outline for my half sleeve!
post #579 of 703

good local shops

I have 8 tats and much more to come.

I've had quite a few exotic peircings but they're all closed up now.

The next tat I want is a quarter sleeve of an ocean scene for my son. (middle name-Oceanside)

I'm looking for a tattoo shop in the area to get that done.

I've never been tattooed in this state.

Any shop suggestions??

Hi all! I'd like to join this tribe

I have had many piercings, including nipple and bellybutton, but am not wearing any of them atm.

I have two tatoos currently, one on my wrist and a shoulder piece. I want so many more. I am addicted

Does anyone have any links to some phoenix tatoos? I think I want a traditional japanese style design. Lots of colour. I have been looking for a design for ages but have been unsuccessful, this seemed like a good place to ask
